Drawing straight, accurate lines can be challenging when relying on a tape measure and a scrap of wood as a straight edge. Now there's a better way, the new Woodpecker T-Square. Whether working off a factory cut edge or not, the Woodpecker T-Square will help you draw straighter, more accurate parallel lines in less time than you can imagine.
Each Woodpecker T-Square consists of a precisely machined, laser engraved aluminum blade perfectly fitted to a solid, billet handle with two support lips to prevent tipping and a perfectly machined edge for true squaring. In an instant, you can move your pencil anywhere off the edge of your stock to 12”, 24”, 32” or anywhere in between and be dead-on without the need of a tape measure.
The two critical parts are secured together with either 4 or 6 precision socket screws, depending on which blade length you choose. A slight offset between the screw holes in the blade and the screw holes in the handle allow for the two to be under constant tension by the precision screws. This arrangement delivers top notch performance yet still allows for replacement of the blade if it is damaged.
The blade itself has precisely spaced 1MM holes drilled every 1/16”. Stick a pencil in the hole, slide it along your work piece and presto, a perfectly spaced line, accurately following the edge of your stock. The outer edges are machined to a 30 degree bevel, putting the scale markings right down next to your stock, where you need them. The scales are laser engraved to a tolerance of .004". The white engraving on our famous “Woodpeckers Red” anodized finish delivers a very readable contrast, even for older eyes or poor lighting conditions. Additional ¼” holes are machined on exact 1” centers for marking shelf pin locations. Each T-Square is delivered with a wall-mountable Rack-It™ to keep your Precision T-square safe and always in plain sight.
4 different sizes are available, 12”, 24”, 600mm and 32”. The 12” size is ideal for work with solid lumber and smaller cabinet parts. The 24”, 600mm and 32” are better suited for work with sheet goods, larger cabinet parts, entertainment centers and bookcases.
Like all Woodpeckers products, these T-squares are proudly machined and carefully inspected in their Strongsville, OH facility, just south of Cleveland.
